I could have done this walk alone, not very inform

The chelsea market is nice and interesting, but the guide did not give us a lot of information. The food was good, but I could have bought it on my own. I fond the tour bowring, I did not learn much. The main part was on the market itselve, I would have prefered a longer walk througt the meetpacking district and more history. The guide talked more about himself, that he loves his job, what he has eaten, which cook he met, who cares???

I have had an especially good time. Our tourguide obviously enjoyed entertaining us. All of our group were thrilled by his enthusiasm in regard to the history and food of the Chelsea Market / Meatpacking District. I learned a lot, was very well feeded and entertained. I believe without taking this tour I would never have known any of the historical and culinary wonders of the Meatpacking District. Next time in New York, I will undoubtly take a Food Tasting Tour with Foods of New York again.

Great tour and not just for 'foodies'

This tour is not only a great way to experience a taste of NYC's gourmet treats but will also satisfy the non-foodie members of your group with the guide's encyclopedic run-down on the history and quirky stories of the area. Don't miss the lobster chowder - an artery-clogging, gourmet delight you could stand your spoon up in!

Quite interesting tour

We had a nice tour through meatpacking district. To see the shops including some food is interesting and to hear some of the history too. Our guide Kurt appeared to be a bit of a chatter and that is an understatement. He talks the whole time but that seems to be normal in New York.

Absolutely a nice tour and definitely worth a recommendation to go to one of the nicest areas in NYC!

A good tour

The start of this tour was a bit awkward but once we got on the way it turned into an enjoyable few hours. There were numerous stops and the history of the market and the meatpacking district was interesting and fun.

The food was good, it didn't blow me away but it was enjoyable. The stops at both Mario Bartali & Morimoto's restaurants was interesting and if you aren't usually a fine diner this might have been the nudge you needed to give it a go. The last stop for pasta was definitely a highlight. There is plenty of food provided on the tour and it is definitely good value for money. The main negative for me was the almost "educational lesson" at the end of the tour of : why and how much one should tip the food industry, which was at the end of the tour. It was not necessary and detracted from the rest of the tour which was great. It would definitely not stop me from encouraging others to give this tour a go.

There were 3 of us on this holiday, and all of us would recommend this tour as a must to any one visiting New York, enjoyed all the food samples and thought the tour guild was absolutely brilliant.
